  • January 20th. Amazing some people dont know this stuff lol. And yes some ppl act like hes already the president with his fake office of the president elect and all I can see how it might be confusing. Is it 2012 yet?

  • Anonymous, it baffles me too that people don't know this stuff. It's been January 20th for a long, long time.
    Even worse is the people who think he's already president.
    (However, President-Elect is not a "fake office." Way to give the guy a chance.)

  • Do they seriously not teach this stuff in civics classes in high school? Come on. The presidential inauguration has been Jan. 20th since FDR's second term or something like that (with the exception of a couple of times it's fallen on a Sunday). Shouldn't everyone know this? I'm sorry, but I just thought everyone learned this kind of thing.

  • Actually RanaAurora, there is no official Office of the President Elect. He made it up to look more official. He can't wait to have control over your life, and everyone else's.

  • He will be President in Jan'20 at noon.
    No President will have control over your life ,you need to control your own life and stop complaining .
